IO::Moose - Reimplementation of IO::* with improvements
use IO::Moose 'Handle', 'File'; # loads IO::Moose::* modules
$passwd = IO::Moose::File->new( file => '/etc/passwd' )->slurp;
IO::Moose provides a simple mechanism to load several modules in one go.
IO::Moose::* classes provide an interface mostly compatible with IO. The differences:
It is based on Moose object framework.
It uses Exception::Base for signaling errors. Most of methods are throwing exception on failure.
The modifiers like input_record_separator are supported on per file handler basis.
It also implements additional methods like say, slurp.
Loads a modules from IO::Moose::* hierarchy. I.e. Handle parameter loads IO::Moose::Handle module.
use IO::Moose 'Handle', 'File'; # loads IO::Moose::Handle and ::File.
If modules list is empty, it loads following modules at default:
The API is not stable yet and can be changed in future.
